Firstly I would like to say I love your books. I got hooked on Sharpe when I was at school whilst watching the series and after reading Sharpe's Eagle was let down by the series then after. However I do have all the films and almost all the books (but I must say the books are a lot better lol) and as the Napolionic era is what I study and collect (mini figures etc..) I am a fanatic of Sharpe. I agree with you about the Warlord Chronicles, they are fantastic and I am just about to finish Excalibur which is exciting and saddening because once I have finished I know it will all be over. It would be great if they made a movie trilogy but I would hope it would be done as an epic and not as a tv series if it is ever undertaken. I have also read Harlequin and am looking forward to the other novels in the series as again this is a period in history I love and your novals allow your readers to live a part of that period. I have also read a few Starbuck Chronicles, but will return to them in good time. I must say that Stonehenge threw me back as I got totally confused with names and so have laid that one aside for the time being as well. I am attempting to write a novel at this present time (don't worry I won't take any storylines from your books, I look to history especially medieval and biblical for inspiration) and just wanted to let you know how your books have inspired me and given me great Joy. I would like to know if there are any illustrations or paintings that accompany any of your series? and if so how can I get hold of them if it is possable for me to do so? Once again thank you for your excellent books and I hope you will continue to write for many years to come. Ben Edwards
The only illustrations I know are the cover art, plus a few enthusiasts' offerings (and very good they are) - some of those might be found through the Sharpe Appreciation Society - there is a link to it on the Sharpe books page.
